Clarice Smith Distinguished Lecture: Artist Trevor Paglen

  • From tapped fiberoptic cables at the bottom of the sea to football field-sized antennas in deep space, the architecture of state surveillance is as ubiquitous as it is invisible. In this talk from 2015, artist Trevor Paglen shares more than a decade's worth of images, research, and stories about how to "see" the top-secret infrastructures that are so emblematic of our historical moment. This annual series is made possible by the generosity of Clarice Smith.
